Is the quarterback race over at Alabama? Coach Nick Saban will cringe if he reads this because nothing is over until coach Saban says its over. But, barring injury, I think it’s over. Based on the numbers, junior Greg McElroy was impressive and showed a very good grasp of the offense in Wednesday’s first scrimmage, completing 22 of 33 passes for 214 yards and 4 TD (2 INT). Redshirt freshman Star Jackson completed 6 of 16 for 25 yards and an interception. Walk-on Thomas Darrah threw three interceptions in 20 attempts.
McElroy is ahead and he should be ahead because he has played and knows the offense.
